If I'm loading down the system, i.e., running transmission while playing a video, periodically network throughput drops, video stops, cpu activity jumps up, then after a few seconds to a minute suddenly cpu activity goes back to normal, networking and video resumes. In addition I have this "important" message in the log viewer:
Error calling EVIOCSKEYCODE on device node '/dev/input/event2' (scan code 0xc0183, key code 226): Invalid argument
There are several lines with varying scan and key codes, the rest being the same.
In addition, a couple weeks ago, I had locked myself out of the system, (boot to black screen), due to a failed attempt at installing the latest AMD/ATI proprietary drivers. Thanks to the help of several people on the forum, I was able to get back in, using the native drivers.
Obviously as a newbie to Linux I don't know if any of these things are related.
I would appreciate any help anyone could give me, TIA!!
